I stayed for 2 nights in November for a conference I was attending at the RAI. The hotel has a great boutique feel to it and the rooms whilst on the small side provide a good sized desk to work from and well equipped bathrooms. The wifi was very hit and miss so connecting a tablet, smartphone etc is not always successful. There are cables in each room for connecting laptops but even then I found the Internet was slow the majority of the time.
Breakfast was fantastic, fresh breads and pastries served at your table with a great continental buffet selection. Hot items are available to order from the staff and the service was very quick.
I didn't have any time for sightseeing but did walk to the restaurant recommended by the staff on the first night and found a very nice street with plenty of bars and restaurants to suit every taste.
I'd stay again for a leisure trip but the lack of wifi and slow internet really puts me off for business.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Over the years, the Ambassade Hotel has expanded considerably. Starting with just one canal-side building in 1953, it now has 57 hotel rooms distributed among 10 of these buildings. Eight of these canal-side homes are on the "Herengracht" canal, while two others are located on the "Singel" canal. Other buildings are in use by the Ambassade Hotel too, but for other purposes: a few houses further along the Herengracht is the hotel's Float & Massage Centre known as Koan Float and 150 meters further along the Singel canal you will find the hotel's conference room. Except for the building at 335 Herengracht, all the canal-side buildings are physically interconnected. So as not to unnecessarily damage the original character of these canal-side homes, small sets of stairs and landings can be found at various places in the halls and in some of the rooms themselves to bridge the differences in floor elevations between the buildings. Over the years, two lifts have been installed, making all rooms easily accessible. The Ambassade Hotel has a bar and restaurant/brasserie that specializes in the classical French kitchen. The canal houses have been carefully restored to maintain their authentic character and all rooms and suites have been stylishly furnished and decorated. The furnishings are predominantly Louis XV/XVI style with the use of colorful fabrics and in all rooms and public areas you will find original paintings by artists from the famous Cobra movement. ... more less
